Wireless Mesh Network Meetup
Wireless mesh networks
Wireless mesh networks are growing in popularity, thanks in part to improved hardware and open-source solutions that are now available. In the US, broadband stimulus funding has recently given a boost to municipal and community wireless networks, including mesh networks.
Mesh meetups at Noisebridge
We're holding a series of workshops at Noisebridge to learn more about mesh networking, and to work on some projects like installing open-source mesh firmware onto proprietary wireless routers. The next meetup is scheduled for:
Date: I'll be traveling so the meetups are currently on hiatus, but please feel free to schedule another mesh meetup yourself by editing the calendar:.
